URL Encode

Meet URL Encode, a straightforward web tool that quickly and easily decodes from URL-encoding and encodes into it. Your data can be easily converted into a human-readable format by using URL encoding.

Using URL-encoding, or "per cent-encoding," one can encode data in a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). Despite being known as URL-encoding, it is used more frequently within the overall URI set, which comprises both Uniform Resource Locator (URL) and Uniform Resource Name (URN). Due to its frequent use in submitting HTML form data in HTTP requests, it is also utilised in creating data of the "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" media type.

Modern choices

Character set: When encoding textual data, you must mention the character set used because the encoding method does not include this information. The most common option is UTF-8, although there are numerous more; if unsure, experiment with the settings or use the auto-detect option. The decoded data is converted using this information to the character set of our website so that all letters and symbols can be displayed appropriately. Note that since files don't require any web-safe conversions, this is useless for them.

Separately decode each line: Even newline characters are translated into their per cent-encoded versions since the encoded data typically consists of continuous text. To protect the integrity of the input, all non-encoded whitespaces are removed before decoding. If you want to decode several independent data items separated by line breaks, you should use this option.

Live mode: When you enable this setting, all entered data is immediately decoded using JavaScript functions built into your browser without transferring any data to our servers. This option supports only the UTF-8 character set at the moment.
